School spirit is a grave concern
BERWICK, Pa. (AP)-- Not even death can stand between a person and loyalty to the Berwick, Pennsylvania, Bulldogs.
In a town where fans pack the high school stadium every Friday night during football season, one funeral home says it's giving deceased fans the ultimate sendoff: a casket with the Bulldogs' logo inside.
Kelchner-McMichael Funeral Home director David Rairigh says he's come up with similar tributes for deceased Bulldogs fans in the past.
Rairigh says he now has several caskets special-ordered. So far, he says, he has sold one this year.
The funeral home also says it will donate $100 in the deceased's name to the school activity of the family's choice, if they choose the Bulldogs casket.
